The StopHDV campaign has decided it will continue to organise to stop social cleansing and defend social housing in Haringey.

A meeting of the StopHDV organising group on 18 October 2018 decided to continue to organise to monitor housing development and regeneration in Haringey, and to take action as necessary to fight social cleansing and defend social housing and community resources in the borough.

Despite having defeated the HDV (a great success!) there remain unfinished business and new threats in the borough. Lendlease remain as a 'partner' in the demolition proposals at Love Lane and High Road West. The Latin Market at Wards Corner, Seven Sisters is threatened by Grainger, and harassed by market inspectors. The Council has not agreed to ballot Broadwater Farm residents about whether to demolish or refurbish two blocks affected by safety issues. Private developers are bringing forward applications without any social housing, or with 'poor doors' for social tenants. There is much still to do, and StopHDV will continue to play its part.
